Totnes Rare Breeds Farm is a beautiful little farm set on the outskirts of Totnes besides the South Devon Steam Railway. Family run, it relies on the work of volunteers and the great support of its customers to help in its aim to preserve endangered species of farm animals and the diversity of British wildlife.

It is also a fantastic day out! Totnes Rare Breeds is small enough to provide a friendly and personal service, but with enough to keep its visitors occupied and happy all day.

Have you ever fed a red squirrel? Touched one? At Totnes Rare Breeds they will (literally) throw themselves at you for a peanut. Or how about smoothing the feathers of an Eagle Owl or feeling the prickly spines of a hedgehog?

In our small animals’ corner, you can hold a guinea pig on your lap, feel the smooth skin of our corn snake, and watch the adorable chicks and ducklings. 

The majority of pens can be entered, and almost all their inhabitants stroked, patted and cuddled. Take a bag of our special food round to be the centre of attention...especially from our very greedy pygmy goats! 

The farm has a wonderful on-site cafe serving freshly prepared food. The attraction is extremely wheelchair friendly all the way round.

What sets Totnes Rare Breeds apart is the opportunity it offers to be within touching range of all the animals. Just ask one of the knowledgeable members of staff or volunteers and they will be more than happy to tell you all about the animals and help you to get as much out of your day as possible. Defintily a 'hands on' experience for the entire family.

Visit the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm in conjunction with the South Devon Steam Railway, as well as the Buckfast Butterfly Farm. Great value joint tickets available.
